Photo Fundamentals



SKU: N/A Category:

Product Description


In addition to Leica Akademie Australia’s Mastering Your Camera workshop, Principal Instructor Nick Rains will be continuing his series of workshops aimed at improving your mastery of the camera and its settings.

Photo Fundamentals covers the conceptual topics beyond simply operating the camera:

  • Aperture – what is it and what is it for? How does it affect the ‘look’ of your image?
  • Shutter Speed – how does the camera capture movement, or lack of it?
  • ISO – what does it do and why do you need to understand it?
  • Exposure – how do the above settings affect exposure and what is a ‘good’ exposure?
  • Focussing – where and how should you be focussing?
  • Raw vs Jpeg – explained in great detail.
  • White Balance – when and how to set this.
  • Sharpness – how is this achieved?
  • Framing and Composition – what works and what doesn’t.

Plus lots more… (If you have been to any of Nick’s training seminars you will know that there is always room for ‘unscheduled digressions’!)

Lunch will be provided by Leica Akademie Australia.
